The Lake Gruyère walk has some stunning viewpoints over the Fribourg mountains, such as the Moléson, the Dent de Broc and the Gibloux. There are also several places to stop for refreshments: Botterens with its delicious goat’s cheeses and the Maison Cailler in Broc, where you can explore the world of Cailler chocolate.
***The trail is closed from the 29th March to the 6th April 2022 between Corbières and Botterens due to a landslide.***
This first stage is a circular walk and begins in the forest, with a serious workout for your muscles. From Corbières to Botterens, the forest path runs alongside the lake over undulating terrain. In Broc, take the opportunity to discover the largest stand of white willows in Switzerland, in a protected alluvial plain. Make the most of the panoramic views of the Moléson, the Dent de Broc or the Gibloux. Les Laviaux is the perfect spot for bathing and a moment of relaxation. The route to Corbières takes you along a quiet, peaceful path.
Tip: uncover the secrets around the origin and production of chocolate at the Maison Cailler in Broc.
